“Taming the Wild”



























The shroom room creates a micro climate similar to the conditions that mushrooms would thrive in the wild in Asia. This is by no means a new principle and gourmets such as shiitake have been farmed for thousands of years. Our methods simply further refine all of these years of learning.

Using our insulated grow room, humidifiers, heaters/ coolers, air circulation fans, lighting and water, we change the climate conditions within the room during the mushrooms growing life to get the best quality pure mushroom. We use no chemicals during the growing process. Our mushrooms are grown on sawdust and rye blocks which are registered organic. The only other components are water and the mushroom spores. The purity and freshness that this gives our mushrooms is what makes us a truly unique grower.

The Shroom Room has now been dedicated to growing Shiitake alone as the demand and success of these has spiralled. We now produce 60 - 120 kilos per week which are sold through The Farm Shop, to some of the best restaurants in Devon, at food shows/ farmers markets and online.

We are quite keen to show off our grow room and regularly take group bookings and talks for chef schools, children’s schools, social clubs, charities and members of the public with an interest. If you would like more information or would like to make a booking please email scottmarshall@forestfungi.co.uk. Group bookings are limited to 20.

Shroom rooms 2 & 3 are already being planned and will be growing many of the other species that can be seen on the fungi.
